We, and I do mean we, as in all of us, can either admit it or not, but it's way beyond time to put that all behind us, and move on in a positive fashion with our sole focus on solving the problems, and putting sytems in place that will prevent the reoccurance of our mistakes. It's time once and for all to

and plenty more.
